This year, APT Fall Marketplace will be rockin’ at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego from 2:00 p.m. Monday, November 10 to noon on Thursday, November 13. We already have terrific events in the works and some of our most popular talent will be on hand to complement an exciting slate of programming. We hope you can join us.
Our location is stellar – right in the heart of the downtown at the entrance to the 16-and-a-half block historical neighborhood known as the Gaslamp Quarter. Filled with an international mix of restaurants, nightclubs and shops, there is truly something for everyone. A local tram provides easy access to neighboring communities and key tourist attractions, with a stop directly across from the hotel’s main entrance.
The Hard Rock Hotel is a unique place to stay – request a guitar to hone up your skills before the rollickin' Desert Dogs gig on Wednesday night, rock out to complimentary music downloads or even mix your own tunes like a professional DJ. The Hard Rock Hotel is all about music, and we'll have a few of our own musical surprises sprinkled throughout the meeting.
The conference room rate at the hotel is available before and after the meeting, so consider extending your visit. San Diego has so much to offer – from visiting the world-famous Zoo to relaxing on beautiful beaches.
